The Trooper Guitar Tutorial
Nate Richards here – let’s jump in to this The Trooper guitar tutorial with tabs linked below, as well as tabs on screen.
In this lesson, I show you how to play Since U Been Gone on guitar, a pop-rock hit by Kelly Clarkson. This is a classic pop-rock song, with a surprisingly heavy guitar riff. Some of the chords in the riff are reminiscent of the legendary intro in the Master of Puppets opening track, “Battery.” Yes, that’s right. I just compared a Kelly Clarkson song to an old-school Metallica song.
Here are a few tips to help you learn this song:

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play Renegades on guitar by X Ambassadors using fingerpicking, easy guitar chords, and a more advanced version using bar chords. I’ve also included the strumming parts of the song in the guitar tabs linked above.
This song uses fingerpicking – you’ll use the thumb, index, and middle fingers of the pick-hand to pluck the strings. Learn the first measure of the song using the video and the tabs, then stop the video at that point and practice the fingerpicking pattern on one chord for a while until you get used to it.

Nate shows you how to play Tush by ZZ Top on guitar in this guitar tutorial with tabs!

I think it is refreshing to hear straight-up man-writing. Something that is on the opposite end of the spectrum from, say…Nickelback.
Here are some tips for learning Tush on guitar:
